The King's Head, in the centre of Galway city, is hosting a special fundraising night in aid of Galway Hospice this coming Friday, 8th February.
Bands including Pyramid, Tightrope, KIF, FYC, and The Converse Allstars will be performing on the night. Doors open at 9pm and admission is free, however attendees are encouraged to make a €5 donation which includes a pint of Heineken. In addition, The King's Head will be donating €1,500 to the hospice.
Galway Hospice is the main provider of palliative care in Galway, aiming to improve the quality of life for each patient. They rely on the continued support of the people of Galway and fundraising events like this to keep this important service running.
Allen Feeney of Tightrope, organiser of the event, said: “It is a rare occasion that as musicians we get to come together with our peers in the Galway music scene and play our hearts out both for the audience and for each other. We are looking forward to putting on a great show for the people of Galway while showing our support for such an important organisation.”
Paul Grealish of The Kings Head said: “We’re delighted to be involved in this fantastic event for such a worthy cause. This is the second year we’ve hosted Galway Rocks for Hospice and last year was without a doubt one of the best gigs of the year so I can’t wait to do it all over again. All credit to Allen Feeney and all of the amazing bands who are giving up their time to gig in support of Galway Hospice.”
